“Fresh sea food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Fresh fish, clams, crabs, oysters, shrimp, calamari, etc. It doesn't get any fresher or better. The platters can easily be shared by two people. The bowl of clam chowder(good) was a vegetable size bowl full. The small greek salad(average) was large enough for 4 people to share. The meals whether grilled steamed or fried were excellent. The grilled dishes come with rice and grilled veggies and the fried platters come with slaw and french fries. The draw back are don't come looking for table linens, great service and pleasant atmosphere. You order and pay at the counter and your food is prepared and brought to the table. No alcohol or prepared beverages, all bottles and cans. The eating area is small and the tables are very close to where the fresh fish are laying on a bed of ice and you have to like the scent of fresh fish. This is primarily a wholesale fish business and the retail side seemed to come as an afterthought. However if all you want is a very inexpensive FRESH seafood dinner, you must try this.
